Description de l'ouvrage

5 septembre 2013 PARTICULAR HB
**NOW A TOP TEN BESTSELLER**A truly one-off collection of Alexa's writing, doodles and photographs, It combines stories of early style inspirations such as her grandpa and the Spice Girls with discussion of figures of obsession like Jane Birkin and Annie Hall, and reflects on heartbreak, how to get dressed in the morning, the challenges of taking a good selfie, and more. Interspersed with pages from Alexa's notebooks and many a photo of a good night out, It appears in real cloth with hand-crafted marbled endpages covered in polkadots, stripy head & tail bands and luxuriously creamy paper. Witty, charming and with a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, It is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, worries about growing up, or loves just about everything Alexa Chung.Alexa Chung is a model and the co-host of the daily music television programmeFuse News, airing in the US. She is also a contributing editor to British Vogue. The recipient of numerous style awards, Alexa has won the prestigious British Style Award (voted for by the public) three years in a row. She currently lives in New York City.

It by Alexa Chung

There are five items in my wardrobe I cannot live without. The cornerstones I rely upon to make newer, weirder clothing look OK. Without them I would be lost.

My relationship with my denim hotpants is incredibly special. I pack them in my hand luggage when I travel because I fear that one day we will be separated and I will be forced to go out bottomless forevermore because no other shorts will ever be able to replace them. Since the day I found them lurking in a Brixton charity shop we have become so inseparable that even when I take them off they still retain the shape of my bum as they lie on my bedroom floor. I use them to dress down a flashy top, as a practical alternative to muddy trousers at festivals, and over the years have cut them shorter and shorter so that they are now borderline obscene (they keep getting cheekier). Until the denim disintegrates and falls off me, these particular hotpants are here to stay. A navy blue jumper is potentially the most boring item anyone could design and yet it’s my most important possession. The one I own belongs to an ex-boyfriend, and before shops caught on and made ‘boyfriend-fit jeans’ and ‘boyfriend sweaters’ everyone was happily throwing on their actual boyfriend’s belongings to keep warm. I have never travelled without it and it has rescued me from many mornings of outfit panic. Once when I was heartbroken a male friend of mine sent me his navy cashmere jumper to wear as a perpetual hug to cheer me up. It worked. My Burberry trench coat is something I saved up for a long time to buy. When I wear it I feel like a French detective from the sixties. Yet I love how quintessentially British it is, in that it’s practical yet proper. It was either this or a cagoule. I think I made the right choice. Every woman needs s a transportable receptacle to shove her collection of clutter into, and as much as I love some It Bag arm candy I am just as happy to pile everything into a canvas tote. Sometimes I wish I could live like a man and fit everything I need into a single back pocket but that’s never going to happen and besides, then I would lose out on the daily drama that occurs when I think I’ve lost something and have to tip the contents of my bag out only to discover my phone is in my hand. I think a canvas tote bag is as classic as a Chanel 2.55 and the bonus is you can shove it in a washing machine without having a mental breakdown. I thought I could narrow it down to five items I couldn’t live without but I can’t, so: ankle boots because you can wear them with literally anything. A pair of Wayfarer sunglasses—wear at night to seem extra aloof. Ballet flats—I can’t dance but that doesn’t stop me from trying. Dungarees—it’s fine that only toddlers and me like these. A white shirt—a no-brainer.

Revue de presse

If you love Alexa Chung, buy it. If you are interested in fashion and style, buy it. If you're after a book full of pretty pictures and inspo, buy it (Cosmopolitan)

It's a teenage girl's dream come true - an honest insight into one of the world's most copied style ambassadors (Vogue)

Alexa Chung's debut book has got us hooked (Marie Claire)

Very sweet, at times dryly funny ... It will enchant those who get her appeal (Hadley Freeman Guardian)

Alexa is a fashion trailblazer of our times. Whether working a mannish tux or demure pinafore, everything she wears inspires legions of copycats. So who wouldn't want the inside track on her style? (Katherine Ormerod, senior fashion news and features editor. Grazia)

a charming combination of honesty and humour ... her tongue in cheek commentary is what makes It so relatable (National Student)

It does feel like it's been a very long time coming (Metro)

we like Alexa Chung. We really like her. We think she's good at what she does, which is essentially being a wo-man-about-town, wearing cool stuff and saying cool things and giving really good breakup advice. And she's funny on Twitter, which is always a plus. Her book, It, seems to reflect that (Racked.com)

Très déçue, ce livre est d'un creux...! on dirait le journal d'une gamine de 14 ans! Même les soi-disant "astuces" sont nulles... Appeler ça un livre c'est lui faire trop d'honneur...

1.0 étoiles sur 5 There's Nothing to "It" 31 octobre 2013
Par Sophie Winsome - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Wow! What a mess and a huge mistake by me (and Alexa).
I expected so much more and was left with a feeling that Alexa Chung and her friends need a huge reality check.

I usually love books like this and was expecting something along the lines of 'Rookie Yearbook One' by Tavi Gevinson or 'The Goddess Guide' by Gisele Scanlon - one of my all time favourite books.

I'm 19 and when I heard Alexa was writing a book I thought that's my Christmas list sorted but unfortunately no. If it were even a tiny bit more like The Goddess Guide with drawings and photographs and personal stories I'd have given it another star but unfortunately I've found nothing to date as cool for art, photography and super smart writing.

Also I don't like the "It" title. What does "It" mean?

It seems that "It" is devoid of any reality....

John Crace's 'Digested Read' in The Guardian, reviewed 'It' and summed up exactly how I feel here after 1 hour of frustrated reading...

There's nothing to "It"

I still love Alexa on TV but I'm afraid from now on I'll give her books a miss.

Unfortunately on this occasion she comes across as sycophantic and rather uncool. There's very little to champion here : ( and it's also too expensive.

I hate being so negative but "It" is a huge disappointment. : (

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I LOVE YOU ALEXA, BUT WHYYY? 6 décembre 2013
Par RJ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
As soon as I heard that Alexa Chung was writing a book I jumped on amazon and pre-ordered. I wish her book had more substance. Reading her book was a painful experience. She is an amazing host and has amazing style... Maybe she should stick to what she knows best. The book is aesthetically pleasing. The pictures makeup for the lack of effort that seems to have gone into the writing. After reading this book I felt I wasted my money.

Here is a short list of other ways to use this product:
coaster
stop wobbly tables
game of catch
hollow out pages to hide things inside
use pages for gift warp/tissue paper

ALEXA,
IF YOU EVER DECIDE TO WRITE ANOTHER BOOK PLEASE MAKE IT WORTH BUYING.
THANK YOU.

Terribly disappointed. Zero editorial value. As much as I would like to believe Alexa has brains, this book shows little of it.

Par readeraddict - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I really love Alexa's style and everything about her. That's why it's soooo painful for me to say that it was kind of (totally) painful to read. Take all her instagram and facebook pics and posts, print them and charge $25 for it. that's what this book is all about.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 What a waste of time and money 31 octobre 2013
Par Nadezhda Kovynyova - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The book is so boring and unoriginal. Looks like it has been written overnight without a thought-through content. The drawings and photographs are also dull and pervert, you can find them on her Instagram without paying $22.00. Seriously - not worth it.
